I'm not so naive as to think that the Web can do without ads, but as someone who has a "Niven's hyperspace blind spot" for web adverts, targeted ads would not improve the browsing experience.
I wish somebody would go to prison. That would be hilarious, and also stop this whole debacle in its tracks.
Asus' new EN8800GT 512Mb cards (Both TOP and Standard) now come with it's "Glaciator" Heatsink, which does keep temperatures nice and cool.
It even allows the vanilla EN8800GT to be clocked at TOP speeds, which is nice.
Which version of SmartDoctor were you using in your tests? Because Asus have played with the Standard BIOS on the 512Mb version, only the latest SmartDoctor can read the GPU temp (but alas, not the fan speed)
Privatisation of the BBC sounds like an incredibly bad idea.
As much as it's full of tosh like eastenders and strictly come dancing, I prefer to pay a licence fee and not have commercial advertisements, than to pay a monthly subscription and STILL be bombarded with crass marketing messages (I'm looking at you, unnamed satellite provider that rhymes with 'pie')
ITV/Channel 4 aren't any better really. I still flick to the Beeb when the adverts are on - if there's something more interesting on (which there usually is) then the beeb stays on.
The commercial channels are losing out by having attention breaking gaps in programmes that only require half a brain cell to watch, thus making it really easy to realise just what you've been doing. ("Oh Noes! I'm a Celebrity's on! Quick, switch over!")
Don't even get me started on the volume differences between the adverts and programmes on certain channels either.
"Going round the section of "usb carp" in PC Wrold i seem to buy something every time. My mates keep muttering something about "more money than cents" but i dont understand it..."
USB Carp - Genius. You could sit near your PC, fishing all day and everyone would think you were working.
Unless it turned out to be a "Billy Bass" Fiasco.
